For those that want it all; trophy fish, well-rested wilderness waters, top-shelf guides, fine cuisine and creature comforts punctuated by rustic overnights in the bush, look no further. Poronui Outback is a unique new wilderness fishing program designed by Fly Water Travel and delivered by the incredibly talented crew at the acclaimed Poronui; the North Island lodge that continues to set the bar against which all others are measured. For those that want access to some of New Zealand’s most remote and least-visited wilderness fisheries and relish in the rustic charm of campfires, wall-tents and back-country huts, this is the end-all experience.

Tailor made for groups of 2-4 anglers, this program will base out of Poronui’s rather lavish camp on the Mohaka River. Nights spent here will include quality beds, fine cotton sheets, hot showers, flush toilets and the same incredible wine and cuisine enjoyed by guests at the main lodge. The tentative schedule will be to start the week with a day warming up on Poronui’s excellent home waters. Next, guests will chopper out to a remote and very well rested fishery for three days of wilderness fishing and two nights of “roughing it” in either wilderness huts or basic camping tents. Guests will then return to the comforts of the Mohaka Camp for one day of 4×4 assisted fishing and an additional day of wilderness helicopter fly-out fishing. For those that like exceptional guides, remote well rested water, the smell of campfire smoke and falling asleep to the sound of rushing waters, few trophy trout experiences will compare.

The Safari Camp
Locate on the banks of the Mohaka river the safari camp far from roughing it. Complete multiple safari style tents, guest Dine under the stars, drink cocktails by the campfire and fall asleep to the sound of the cascading river. This is as close to roughing it as it gets at Poronui, providing a unique opportunity to enjoy splendid backcountry isolation whilst not forgoing creature comforts like crisp cotton sheets, hot running water, flushing toilets, gourmet food and fine wine.
